The world has changed. Shareholder value is increasingly linked with societal value. This is rapidly becoming a dominant reality across industries, geographies and sectors.
The space where business meets society is growing in importance and is becoming a key source of competitive advantage for organizations of all types.
Our mission is to help businesses and organizations thrive in this new reality; efficiently creating value for shareholders and society. That is the focus of our services and programs.
We are uniquely qualified to provide a customized blend of advisory services and training, helping to transform organizations and teams. We use an advisory services approach to work with teams, groups and entire organizations to help with strategic and operational issues and integrate that with customized training to help turn challenges into opportunities. Some examples include:
Bespoke programs & seminars – We can work with you to design and implement bespoke, in-house training programs, seminars and learning events tailored to your needs. These can be delivered at project sites, at corporate retreats and events or other locations as desired.
CSR SWOT: Fresh-eyes Reviews – We have consistently found that an experienced set of ‘fresh-eyes’ can build on existing work and knowledge and bring new perspectives to the complex and interwoven sets of risks, opportunities and issues that modern business operates in.
This is true whether you are dealing with the evolving social and regulatory environment of an extractive sector project or the intricate combination of supply-chain issues, brand management and consumer desires that drive success in fast moving consumer goods.
Finding the value – CSR and sustainability spending is often more focused on societal value than shareholder value. This leaves money on the table. We help companies to create and capture more shareholder value from existing CSR and sustainability programs.
Strategic CSR Planning and Implementation – we work with Boards and Executives to review or even develop a strategic CSR plan for their organization.
Then, with an understanding of the unique opportunities and challenges, we develop and deliver training programs that facilitate efficient and sustainable implementation of the plan.
Depending on the needs of the organization the overall program can include field mentoring components and multiple training sessions.
Stakeholder Engagement – Strategy, structure and process are key to stakeholder engagement. We can work with organizations to review their strategy, structure and process, helping to identify enhancement opportunities. We can then build a customized training program that allows field teams and internal stakeholders to improve performance in this critical area.
Programs normally involve an initial review and assessment period followed by a classroom training session and a field mentoring period and culminating in a final classroom session. Ongoing mentoring and support can be arranged.
CSR Partnership Development – CSR Partnerships can be an efficient means to deliver both developmental value to the community and value to the organization. Whether it is a business partnering with a development partner, a government ministry partnering with industry or other partnerships there is a potential for synergy and improved and broadened value creation.
We can work with your organization to review/develop your CSR partnership strategy and then work with your team to identify and develop specific partnerships.
Utilizing a combination of advisory services and training ensures that your organization is well positioned to identify and develop these important partnerships on an ongoing basis.
CSR Reporting and Communications – Reporting and communications are critical to realizing value from CSR investments and activities and, when done properly, involve the entire organization.
We can help an organization to review their CSR Reporting and Communications, identify opportunities for increased efficiency and value creation and then help train key people to maximize value and benefits going forward.
We can also assist with the development of standard or stand-alone reports and with developing internal capacity to develop these reports and, more importantly, integrate them into a value creation strategy (rather than an energy and value draining strategy which is often the norm with CSR reporting)
Social Value Brand analysis – your business has a ‘social value brand’ whether you know it or not. It can help you to create value, or it can be a drag and cost you value. We can help you to understand your social value brand and use it to create shareholder value.
Lectures and keynotes – Our lectures and keynotes can help educate, motivate and stimulate your organization or your team. We are available to deliver custom designed content for corporate retreats, strategy sessions, team meetings or other events worldwide
CSR Events – We can work with you and your organization to develop and deliver customized and strategic CSR events on a national, international and global scale.
The CSR Training Institute has a world-class team and unparalleled global experience and expertise. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss how we could help you and your organization achieve your CSR and sustainability objectives. Contact us>>>
Organizations that can benefit most from our services are those that have a strong commitment to CSR and integrating business and societal value. If this is you, then we’d love to talk about how we can help you to do even better.
Organizations wanting ‘window dressing’ or a ‘quick fix’ do not tend to benefit from our services.
